By now, it is evident to anyone perusing these pages that I am somewhat obsessed with hunts in Montana's Unlimited Sheep Units. I say that by way of explaining why I am responding to a two-year-old posting, which I just discovered while revisiting older pages in the MT Unlimited thread..You fellows might want to start looking for their winter range. Looks like they may get another foot of snow in the unlimiteds. Seriously, how much snow will it take to make the sheep start moving down?
congratulates again Sam. Great pic. I Met you on your way out. I'm very impressed. So true on the suffering and struggles that make the success mean so much more then just a trophy on the wall.There’s a picture from my stop at stone glacier a few pages back. Here’s a field photo.
Gotta buddy whose goal is to get one in all 5 districts..... so far he has 3. Now that would be somethin. Said he'll hunt 303 when he's old and gray and can barely saddle a horse.Back to chasing mule deer for the next seven years, then try for another ram in a different unlimited unit.
Good for you!!!!! I don't think it is selfish. I totally get it. I used to post pics of critters that i would harvest and now it would be tough for me to post a pic and story ( I do enjoy a few of them though). To me it is really more about the memories and adventure than the grip and grin photo that everyone seems to think is the most important part of the hunt........guess that is why I don't have one social media account.There’s always a story, but how or if we choose to share it is a personal choice. I’m selfish I guess, I do it for my own memories and I am content with being the only one who’s seen how everything unfolds. I share some pics of the outcome, but the suffering and the struggle that makes success so rewarding are for me.
And that, sir, is what I have so much enjoyed about this continuing thread and its community! The ethics, honest self-deprecation, personal commitment and the encouragement offered by veterans to those freshly contemplating the daunting undertaking, despite potential negative impact additional hunters might have upon their own odds of success, are exemplary examples of sportsmanship." The story of the UL units is so much more than the end result. "
It would make my day to see you two go in together and come out with a ram. If not I hope you do get drawn for the Chugach. That’s an awesome hunt.Shines@times if I do not get drawn for the Chugach next year I think you need to get ready and you and I need to spend a couple weeks in the unlimited area I am thinking we could maybe get one of them trophy's for the oldest to hunt the unlimited. Something to think about.
Haven't you already won that trophy several times?Shines@times if I do not get drawn for the Chugach next year I think you need to get ready and you and I need to spend a couple weeks in the unlimited area I am thinking we could maybe get one of them trophy's for the oldest to hunt the unlimited.

I could be mistaken for some reason I thought he had all 5s covered...... now that I think about it they hunted the 3rd unit and have not yet found what they are looking for. Thanks for your correction.I think we have the same buddy, But I thought he had two and his wife has two
